9780307337375: Naughty Needles: Sexy, Saucy Knits for the Bedroom and Beyond (Potter Craft)

Fulfill your sex kitten fantasies and your crafting jones at the same time: knit naughty! Naughty Needles is a fun and feisty knitting adventure filled with designs that can go from bedroom to costume party and back again. Play it sweet in a Fembot babydoll nightie or sex it up in Hootchie Kootchie pasties. When you’re feeling frisky, knit up the Baby Blue-Ball Gag or play dress-up in the naughty nurse cap or the felted Red Riding Hood cape. New and experienced knitters alike will find inventive and easy-to-follow patterns. And since the garments aren’t exactly full-coverage, they don’t take much time to complete.

With inspiration from retro icons like surfer Gidget, Mrs. Robinson, and cavegirl Raquel Welch, Nikol Lohr pushes the boundaries of the traditional “wifely” crafts into the age of Sex and the City and cuddle parties. Part how-to guide, part peep show, Naughty Needles is a brash, tongue-in-cheek take on an age-old art. From the demure to the bizarre, with a splash of fetish thrown in, these are the projects that will make you smile–and make your partner growwwwl.

About the Author:

Nikol Lohr is the thirty-something creator of DisgruntledHousewife.com and the brand-new ThriftyKnitter.com, as well as the co-queenie of cooking site OutOfTheFryingPan.com and chick site SmileAndActNice.com. She and her websites have rated mention in numerous publications, including Wired, Playboy, The Guardian, Glamour, the New York Times, Cosmopolitan, the Los Angeles Times, the Sydney Herald, the San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, Paper, and Fortune. As a champion of the wifely arts, Lohr can cook, sew, crochet, knit, needlepoint, embroider, decoupage, print, grow things, fix things, and generally craft her ass off. A longtime resident of Austin, Texas, Lohr recently moved to rural Kansas, where she is rehabilitating four old school buildings into a secluded arts retreat.

Review:

"Ms. Lohr's beautifully illustrated and coyly annotated book, "Naughty Needles," could be a 50's pinup calendar for wool fetishists. The tableaus she presents are provocative in a retro way, mixing Betty Boop va-va-voom with Doris Day innocence." -The New York Times

"This is not mere peekaboo. We're talking full-on seduction mode--fishnets, straitjackets, whips, and plenty of racy lingerie." -The Village Voice

"From start to finish, the book is filled with wickedly sexy pinup color photographs of hip-looking girls and guys in various demonstrations of the naughtily knitted product." - SFGate

Naughty Needles is a hilarious, yet very sexy ode to the bondage/pin-up days of the '50s and 60′s. ...some very cool, well thought out knits that make a girl proud to not be one of those emaciated models of today. -Vickie Howell
